Extra Photo Gallery: Rooms & Suites
Carlton Holiday Hotel & Suites is located on Persiaran Akuatik in Shah Alam and is easily accessible from the Federal Highway at the exit of Persiaran Kayangan. The hotel building is situated between Pusat Akuatik (Aquatic Centre) and TESCO Mall.
As for public transportation, apart from regular city buses that pass through Persiaran Kayangan, there are also stations for KTM Komuter trains at either Batu Tiga or Shah Alam from which you get hire a taxi to get to the hotel.
Carlton Holiday Hotel & Suites is owned by Majlis Sukan Negara (MSN) Selangor, which is a governing sports development body for the state. Its location is quite strategic and generally easy to get to. It took me very little time to find the hotel in a leisure drive as the traffic in Shah Alam is often forgiving due to the city's inherent good road network. The hotel generally hosts quite a number of guests from the sporting events held at the adjoining Aquatic Centre or the Shah Alam Stadium.
The hotel boasts a total of 112 guest rooms across its 7-storey building. In general, there are four room categories being offered by the hotel. The room categories are Deluxe (89 units), Super Deluxe (4 units), Executive Suite (5 units) and Hostel (10 units of 8-beds, 4 units of 4-beds). The Deluxe room category comes with two bedding configurations, namely two single beds or one king-size bed. At higher category, the Super Deluxe room features a more spacious living space as compared to the Deluxe rooms. The Super Deluxe room is only available in king-bed configuration. At the highest room category, the Executive Suite opens into two partitions for living room and bedroom. The living area is rather impressive with soothing colour selection for the fabric sofa to create a nice and homely ambience. The bedroom is equipped with a king-size bed as well as a spacious ensuite bathroom. Additionally, the hotel actually offers hostel-type of accommodation which is suitable for school trips and visiting athletes. The hostel room type comes in two bedding configurations, namely four and eight single beds.
The hotel hosts four F&B outlets although, according to a hotel personnel whom I spoke to, they are operated independently from the hotel. Directly facing the reception counter are two restaurants, namely Raja's Curry and The Cafe Barnes. Also on the lobby floor is Q.Blue Bistro which is designed fashionably and serves light cocktails. The bistro opens from 1100am to 100am daily. On the second floor is Meng Yun Restaurant which opens from 1100am to 1030pm daily.
